Do you love singing? We’re looking for people to help support the Spiral Dance!
Please calendar it  for this year. We begin rehearsals after Lammas/Lughnasa. Rehearsals alternate between SF and the East Bay near public transportation. There are also three Dress Rehearsals/Run-throughs. If you live in far-off places, please consider joining. We can set up carpools in your area. Children and youth are most welcome! Thanks for your interest; we look forward to singing with you!
